Via Everest Base Camp

The drive from Katmandu to Lhasa, over spectacular Passes and revealing views of the majestic Himalayas, takes seven days over the “Friendship Highway”. The drive is well worth it as you encounter some enchanting Buddhist monasteries, highest mountain of the world (Mt. Everest) and remote villages untouched by modern civilization. While approaching the city you will be able to notice the Potala Palace, a vast white and ochre fortress that dominates the Lhasa skyline, en route we will stop for two nights in Everest Base Camp.

Beside the Everest Base Camp, the will by pass through the major highlighted places of Tibet, Nyalam, Shigatse & Gyantse the historical seat of Tibetan power and the location of the tombs of previous Dalai Lamas, the Potala Palace has been reduced to serve as a symbolic feature for Tibetan aspirations. The Jokhang temple, 2 km to the east of the Palace, has become the spiritual hub of the country. Bustling with worshippers and redolent with mystery, the Jokhang is an unrivalled Tibetan experience. The medieval Barkhor Bazaar with crowds, street performers, hawker's stalls selling everything from prayer flags to jewel-encrusted yak skulls and the devout touching their foreheads to the ground at every step to Jokhang is an exotic brew that few newcomers can resist. A visit to Drepung monastery is well worth the effort and for some can be a very enlightening experience. The Norbulingka Palace (summer palace of the Dalai Lamas) along with a round of the Sera monastery is the other highlight of this package. After two days sightseeing in Lhasa you are free. Travelers who prefer to travel independently in Tibet rather than sticking with a fixed itinerary can take this overland tour. This 9 days tour brings you to Lhasa via highlighted places situated in Kathmandu Lhasa highway (friendship highway). Once you reach Lhasa , your are independent and you will be responsible for making all the necessary arrangements and return journey to Nepal or towards to mainland China . However, if you would like to fly out from Lhasa to Kathmandu or any other city of mainland China , we can manage the air ticket in advance.

For this type of tour, we are allowed to get the Tibet visa for a maximum 25 days (however this may change) after that if you want you can extend your visa by yourself in Tibet (not in Lhasa though, only in small town out of Lhasa). You are allowed to travel with Tibet visa up to the Mainland China where this visa will be replaced by an individual Chinese visa. This will be valid for another 30 days.

No matter about the group size, this tour can be arranged for both individuals and small group travelers any time on their request. This is not a fixed departure tour, so travelers can chose the dates according to their convenience. For those who wish to come back by flight after staying in Tibet, the air tickets can be managed in advance from Kathmandu.
